Tobacco use includes: chewing tobacco, cigars and cigarettes.How Does Tobacco affect your oral health:1) Mouth Cancer in addition to Lung and Throat Cancer may be developed from smoking2) Teeth Staining from the tar and nicotine3) Gum disease and tooth loss from the increased dental plaqueThe best thing you can do is to never start any type of tobacco habit. If you are a tobacco user, it’s not too late to quit.
Dr. Frankel prefers to correct small dental issues before they become big dental problems. Diagnodent, a diagnostic tool detects tooth decay early. Unlike the traditional ways of decay detection including dental instruments called probes Diagnodent uses a laser like luminous light to detect decay at an early stage.
- Detecting early decay means smaller restorations and preserving more natural tooth structure
- Fluoridated water has made the outer surface of the tooth stronger which is a good thing…except when looking for decay in the natural deep grooves and fissures in teeth where it forms.
- It is a challenge to find the earliest stages of decay without the new technology Diagnodent allows.
- Early detection means smaller fillings and healthier teeth.
Modern technology, healthier teeth and highly trained, caring Personnel…Dr. Frankel offers gentle, effective high tech dentistry.
